Well I had a chance to setup these up today, I think the toughest part was trying to decide where to place them. Super easy setup after that though. Quality in day time looks excellent, I haven't had a chance to check out the night vision yet. Also connected to Alexa as well and can even view the cameras from my Echo Spot as well. I wish the were still on sale though I could add one more to the system, but they are back up to full price now.

Just curious about a few things.

 

1) How's the night vision and real world practical distance?

 

2) Is there noticeable lag? A few years ago, a coworker had a high quality 1080p wireless, but the lag was terrible, thought camera technology needed some years yet to improve.

 

3) is it cheap or easy to save the video locally?

Awesome, I think the night vision is quit far out there as well, this is even on the old gen 1 cameras I have.

 

2) Is there noticeable lag? A few years ago, a coworker had a high quality 1080p wireless, but the lag was terrible, thought camera technology needed some years yet to improve.

I don’t see any. I mean you can just do live view and people walking around is not choppy.

 

3) is it cheap or easy to save the video locally?

So I am grandfathered in for the free cloud storage, but the new Blink Module 2 allows you to plug a usb stick into it and save locally without a subscription.

 

if your wanting a camera system that doesn’t require you to run any wires and can handle all the weather out there, these are for you. There are a lot of features as well to play with, scheduling, zones, etc.

Looks like Blink is introducing their first doorbell, I kept wondering when they would do it. I will be picking one up, it's both wired and wireless. BTW I have still yet to replace one battery and it's been over 3 years. Excellent price as well. Just placed my order.

Got my doorbell the other day and installed it tonight. Took me about 10 minutes max. They sent a free angle mount which I used as well. It was easy to setup just as their cameras are. Has a nice big fish eye camera to it. I also enabled the Amazon Alexa skill which enables the door bell to ring across your Amazon devices and make an announcement "Someone is at your front door" or whatever you name it.
